Ballet Ireland is delighted to present a national tour of Swan Lake, one of the greatest love stories of classical ballet, to 26 theatres throughout Ireland.
This most famous of ballets, combines romantic themes, classical technique and ethereal imagery together with Tchaikovsky's majestic score, to ensure this masterpiece’s immortality.
Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who by day is turned into a swan by evil magician Von Rothbart, only to regain her human form at night. Out hunting by the Lakeside, Prince Siegfried encounters her and falls in love with her. But will he be able to break Von Rothbart’s spell…?
This enduring story of love and tragedy, good and evil, and has enthralled audiences since it premiered in 1877.
This autumn 25 leading professional dancers from Ireland and abroad will perform in this breath-taking production which was loved by audiences and critics when last produced by Ballet Ireland.
‘Perfectly formed and translucent production of the romantic classic’
‘Clever touches with the choreography, performances and staging’
The Irish Times
‘Moving production…beautifully choreographed’
The Sunday Business Post
‘exuberant and beautiful production’

A multi lingual science-fiction drama in Irish, English & Empirish
It’s 2084 and a world where ‘The Empire’ reigns supreme. Most European languages are forbidden. We’re introduced to the menacing wilderness that was once Belfast. Makaronik , the last woman standing, has been instructed by ‘The Centre’ to wrap up her archive and send back all remnants of the Irish language for ‘storage’. Diarmuid and Gráinne, two high level officials arrive to ensure that all goes smoothly and that Makaronik comes back with them….. but will it all go as smoothly as planned? Futuristic yet rooted in an ancient tradition, think of Beckett’s Endgame, Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner with just a hint of The Matrix. This play asks the big questions, the relentless drive of technology as it makes the world seem smaller and asks what are we losing out on? It’s also a story about home, security, and the basic human need to create family and community, even under the most alien of circumstances. A struggle that is at the beating heart of Makaronik
Makaronik is derived from the Latin - macaronic where the mixing up of languages has a humorous or satirical intent
Empirish: think George Orwell’s ‘Newspeak’ or Star Trek’s ‘Klingon’ Language

Harlem Gospel Choir
Having performed for Nelson Mandela at the Yankee Stadium, for the Pope in Central Park, with the Chieftains on their US tour and on U2's “Rattle and Hum” album, film and tour, the Harlem Gospel Choir will, once again, return to Ireland for an extensive tour.
The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir was formed in 1988 and made its highly successful debut at New York's Cotton Club the same year. The Choir draws its core singers from various black churches in the Harlem community, who share the common aim of bringing about a better understanding of African/American culture. Founder member, Allen Bailey has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. He was promotional director for major recording artists including Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores, Prince, Michael Jackson, Mr. T, and Isaac Hayes. He was chairman for the Martin Luther King Holiday campaign and it was through this work that the Harlem Gospel Choir was born.
Their songs of inspiration touch the depths of the soul and raise spirits to angelic heights. The Choir devotes his time to spreading the joy of faith throughout the world. This is not to be missed and promises to sell out quickly.

Laugh and a Half
Due to the phenomenal success of Conal’s comedy play “A Bit On The Side”, available dates are few and far between so for 2014 Conal has had to condense his stand up tour into a few very limited number of shows and the Garage Theatre is the place to see him.
Don’t miss out on this rare chance to see Conal performing his hilarious new show – Laugh and A Half and see why he really is Ireland’s funniest man!
